Keanu Neal done for season with torn Achilles

Keanu Neal will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn Achilles in Sunday’s loss to the Colts, Vaughn McClure reports.

Fantasy Impact

Neal left the game early with a suspected tear, and tests on Monday confirmed the worst. He’ll have surgery this week and should be ready to go for the 2020 season. It’s a big blow for the Falcons who lost Neal for 15 games last season when he suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 1.

Keanu Neal leads all Falcons with nine tackles

Keanu Neal ended Sunday’s 24-20 win over the Eagles with nine total tackles.

Fantasy Impact

Neal had a better second outing this season now totaling 10 tackles in two games played. The high profile SS for the Falcons should be owned and can be started in most IDP leagues.

Keanu Neal: Falcons intend to exercise fifth-year option

Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff told Vaughn McClure of that the team intends to exercise safety Keanu Neal’s fifth-year option for the 2020 season. The team has until May 3 to pick up the option, which is expected to be around $7 million.

Fantasy Impact

Neal, the 17th overall pick in 2016, is currently recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in the season opener. He has started 31 games in his career and was named to the Pro Bowl last season.

Keanu Neal (ACL) to injured reserves, Damontae Kazee in

With safety Keanu Neal (ACL) being placed on injured reserve after the knee injury this past Thursday night in the loss in Philadelphia, Damontae Kazee will be his replacement in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Impact

Damontae Kazee has had a stellar offseason and was a playmaker when he was inserted for Neal during the contest that Neal went down. He should be on all IDP radars as a great option in Atlanta's defensive scheme and will likely be near what Neal would have produced for leagues as a designated defensive back. He is a hot topic pick up.
